We came here on our tour on a Sunday and it just so happened to be that we came by when there was a mass in session. Make sure to bring a scarf to cover your head, If you are a woman. We were able to walk through to where the mass was held, and we also got to tour the former palace, and they have a small museum with historical artifacts. It’s a really beautiful and majestic experience to come here.

It is definitely worth the ride up the mountain to Entoto to see this church. I love to see the Ethiopian art work that each church displays to teach the Bible to an illiterate congregation. They learn Bible stories through art.

This is a colorful church great for photo taking. The museum has a lot of information about the history and culture of ethiopia. Photos are not allowed inside. The house at the end is very basic. I didn’t go into the church and I am not sure if one is allowed. It’s a bit far from center but not a bad drive.

located on top of Entoto Hill, Maryam Church is a must see if ever you will be in Addis Ababa, easy to go there by public but I recommend private transpo.

It is a colorful orthodox church thats full of history and a witness of the greatness of Ethiopia.

Outside theres a priest to greet you and you can already experience a traditional Ethiopian religion.

Also in this church there is a museum full of Ethiopian historical treasures and knowing the story you will appreciate the country, museum fee is 100birr and no taking of pictures =(

But! Only pictures outside the museum and church.

Theres also an old traditional Ethiopian house at the back of the church.

An ancient octagonal church on the top of Entoto Hill . Good spot for history buffs
Old colorful building and view of addis from the top is breath taking , Very serene spot

Surprised on the visiting fee they are charging to foreigner, Not worth to pay this amount . Lot of sick people around the vicinity but they will not trouble you
will not go again

long trip from the centre of Addis to find..........nothing. It is far from the centre. You pass some place where they sell local fabrics but not really worth buying anything.

Entoto was the former residence of Ethiopian Emperor Menelik II and Empress Taitu before Addis Abeba was founded. The church is beautiful.
